Adam has worked for the European Cyclists` Federation (ECF) since 2010 and is currently the Director of EuroVelo, Cycling Tourism, and Regional Policy. The ECF’s aims in these fields are to complete EuroVelo, the 70,000 km European cycle route network, by 2020 and to secure €6 billion from the EU to fund cycling projects in Europe between 2014 and 2020. In order to achieve these ambitious goals he has created a National EuroVelo Coordinators Network stretching across the continent and established lobbying tools that can be used by ECF’s Members at the National/Regional level.
After graduating with a Masters Degree in urban and regional development he worked initially as a consultant/researcher/manager on regional development projects and European subsidies. He first started to deal with cycling advocacy on the European level in 2004, when he was elected as Vice-President of the ECF. Between 2005 and 2010, Adam was the Cycling Commissioner of the national government in Hungary and the Head of the Interministerial Committee on Cycling. In these roles he coordinated the planning and implementation of the National Cycling Strategy and allocated €250 million for cycling-related projects between 2007-2013.
